You are part of a workgroup that uses all Windows Home PCs. One of the devices is sharing a folder with two people who do not have accounts on that computer. Which Control Panel tool will you use to add users and passwords to this computer?

A User Accounts.

To add new accounts for users, use the User Accounts Control Panel application. You could utilize the Local Users and Groups software on a Windows Pro or better computer, but it is not available on Windows Home editions. It is likewise not listed as a separate Control Panel utility, although it can be accessed through Administrative Tools in Windows 10 Pro and higher editions (but not Windows 11). (choose Computer Management, then Local Users and Groups). There is no link in the Administrative Tools utility to the Control Panel User Accounts utility, which is not as versatile as Local Users and Groups. The Mail utility is where you set up user profiles for Microsoft Outlook.
